1Can you use a derma roller more than once?
Don’t wait too long to replace your derma roller; after ten to fifteen uses, you should swap your current roller for a new one, so you may need a new one every month if you’re rolling several days a week.
2How do you sanitize a derma roller?
Allow your derma roller to soak in 70% isopropyl alcohol for about 5 to ten minutes.
3Are derma rollers one time use?
Derma rollers can be used for the first few days, according to Dr. Zeichner. “If your skin can tolerate the therapy without having any problems,” he says, “move to every other day, then eventually every day.” “The at-home devices are very different from medical therapies, which often result in lengthy days of downtime.”
How to Use a Derma Roller When you’re derma rolling, there are a few steps to get to the main event. Dr. Zeichner recommends that you have completely cleansed your skin before using a derma roller at home. To get the most effective treatment, it’s important to get rid of any dirt, oil, or makeup. No matter how clean your skin is, if you have any rash, open wounds, or any other skin disease, do not derma roll and consult an expert if necessary.
4Can you get an infection from derma rolling?
Microneedling leaves tiny holes in the skin, which may lead to germs to penetrate, especially if the machine isn’t properly cleaned. But the risk of infection is very low. Microneedling infections are unlikely if you’re healthy.

If you’re using a derma roller, you’ll want to wait at least two weeks for your skin to recover. For longer needle lengths, you should give your skin a rest, but you shouldn’t even be using large needle sizes at home (1mm+) because they can be more difficult if not handled by a specialist.

Not only does it touch your skin, but it also punctures your scalp’s layers. If your derma roller is not clean, it could become a breeding ground for bacteria. One patient in the micro-needling group developed a bacterial infection, according to a report that looked at the use of micro-needling.
10Can I use vitamin C serum after using derma roller?
Avoid exfoliants, retinols, and vitamin C. Avoid any skin care product that contains harsh chemicals that are supposed to exfoliate.

When cosmetics or other skin care products such as moisturizers and sunscreen are used, dark or light spots on the skin, lines on the face, a rash of cold sores, swollen lymph nodes, and infection are all typical risks.
Be aware that microneedling does not always result in the desired aesthetic appearance, and it may take more than one procedure to achieve the desired results.
